About the Wine
Ca' de Lion was founded in 1871 by Luigi Ghione. The winery takes the name of the family ancestor, Leone Ghione (1655). Generations of expertise in Piemonte has elevated this artisanal producer to its highest level ever. Farming sustainably and naturally, the wines from this estate show a purity of flavor. The depth and nuance of the wines vibrates and speaks of the place where they come from in the hills of Canelli.
Blend: 60% Ruchè, 40% Pinot Nero
Tasting Notes: A spectacular, unique and indigenous blend. The wine is velvet in the mouth. Brilliant aromatics reveal layers of violet, fresh rose, luxardo cherry, and blackberry. Very light oak and lip-smacking acidity make this a stellar food wine with a variety of foods.
Serve with a light chill. The wine can be decanted 30 minutes prior to serving. And, it will improve over the next 3-5 years.
